Description: When Clara Endicott and Daniel Tremain's worlds collide after twelve years apart, the spark that was once between them immediately reignites into a romance neither of them thought possible. But time has changed them both. Daniel is an industrial titan with powerful enemies. Clara is an idealistic journalist determined to defend underprivileged workers. Can they withstand the cost of their convictions while their hearts--and lives--hang in the balance?
Can Elizabeth Camden write a bad book? I doubt it. I only have one book of hers left that I haven’t read, and if it is anything like all the others I have read, it will be amazingly good.
This book is probably the weakest of Camden’s books I have read, but is still is better than most fiction. Again, Camden made me fall for characters I normally hate and be enraptured by a story line that I typically wouldn’t like. How does she do it? By delving deeper into the characters than most authors.
For those of you who have read Against the Tide, this gives you a glimpse into the beginnings of Bane and the woman who helped him find the right path. Although he is not the focal point of the story, Bane adds so much.
The setting was wonderful. Camden always manages to weave many historical details seamlessly into her stories. She always makes me feel as if I have been transported back in time. She obviously does her research so well that she doesn’t have to force it into the story. It just comes out naturally.
Clara was such an endearing character. I love her compassion and willingness to do so much for that compassion. She was brave, yet very much human in her fears. She works so hard to change the world, but sometimes the consequences are hard. Through everything she goes through, her strong faith and compassion shines through. She is the type of woman I want to be.
Daniel was the kind of character I normally hate. He is poisoned with bitterness and his quest for revenge seems to be endless. Yet his love for Clara and his sisters was so touching. His quest to make a better life than the tragic one he endured as a child couldn’t help but tug at my emotions. He was a very flawed hero, but a true hero none the less.
This story kept me turning pages way past the time I should have been asleep. It was gripping and an emotional roller-coaster. The ending was satisfying and just… well, it was just so Camden. She has become my standard for amazing fiction.
If you like realistic fiction, amazingly told stories, and deep characters, I highly recommend The Lady of Bolton Hill.
